For the Toyota U.S. Open, Speedo Winter Junior Championships, and TYR Pro Swim Series events in Knoxville and Des Moines, USA Swimming is requiring everyone to present verifiable negative COVID-19 test results at registration prior to receiving a credential. A rapid antigen test is acceptable, as are some rapid at-home tests. Acceptable rapid at-home tests must provide verifiable results (a photo of an at-home test card will not suffice).
We recommend the BD Veritor At-Home COVID-19 Test. The BD Veritor At-Home COVID-19 Test results are managed entirely through the free Scanwell Health app on a compatible smartphone, with clear positive or negative result that can be saved for future access. Cost is $26.50 but includes two tests, which means two individuals could share (please be aware that USA Swimming will not be reimbursing for test costs). It can be purchased on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B099HXCBSW/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_BG2815BVG98GSWZ61FY0
